Get amazed by a young man's faith after the blessing of his fabulous car,Truly, the Lady of Peace and Good Voyage is the main attraction at Antipolo City. Before my family goes to Antipolo Hills,we pass by this place were a mall is also located.It was really challenging to my faith to see someone doing so.And a nice view to start at Antipolo during our stay there.

The Shrine of Our Lady of Antipolo is indeed worth the visit ----- religion-wise, culture-wise, and travel-wise.

I went there on a Sunday. I started my trip in Cubao (Farmer's Market) aboard an FX van. The road to Antipolo offers a good vista of mega Manila. Beside the winding road are resort establishments that caters mostly to hordes of visitors from different towns in the Philippines.

When our van finally reached the town proper, you sense the visitor-friendliness of the place... Vendors crowd the sidestreets with their goodies: suman, pili nuts, banana fritters, rice cakes, etc.

At the end of the mainstreet is the Antipolo church which they simply call Simbahan. Since it was a Sunday, throngs of people where going in and out of the church.

First time to visit the pilgrimage church. It was a beautiful place indeed! A very good place for praying and meditation. After the visit, we had a great time as well buying 'pasalubong' like suman, and kasuy.

It is said that you must visit the Shrine of Our Lady of Good Voyage if you are embarking on a journey to ensure a safe trip. A lot of people come here to do so, and devotees flock during the Shrine's yearly pilgrimage days.

On any given day, expect to see a wedding, a funeral mass or even a baptism ceremony going on. Visitors during regular days may be allowed to climb up to see the statue of the Lady up close, and there maybe exhibits from time to time. The church offers regular Catholic mass and services such as confession and blessing of new vehicles. There are prayer areas and a whole slew of statues of different Saints scattered around the walls.

Worth a visit if you're looking for a place to channel your faith and worship.

Evening mass in the Cathedral was our objective.

Evelyn said the last mass was at 6 p.m. (I wondered about that since for the last 2 Christmases, we always heard the 8 p.m. mass at the Cathedral... but then, I thought, it might be a special arrangement as it was Christmas.)

We tried to get to the Cathedral by 6 p.m. but were obviously late. The 6 p.m. mass was about to end. At the gate of the Cathedral, sacristans were lined up and devotees with candles were readying themselves. When asked, I was told that there will be a procession after the mass.

It was good that Evelyn was wrong. There was apparently another mass scheduled after the 6 p.m. mass. As the mass was drawing to a close, we heard the priest say that the image of the Virgin Mary will be brought down for the procession.

It was the first time I saw the image of the Virgin Mary up close. People solemnly looked and prayed as the cart full of white flowers carrying the Virgin Mary was pushed through the main alley of the Cathedral.

7 p.m. Mass. English Mass. We participated in the 7 p.m. mass. As usual, the mass was solemn -- which to me was unusual since there was still a large crown attending the mass. The sound system was very good --- no unnecessary echoes that usually occur in other huge churches. The visual aid for the songs and responses were clearly projected on the left hand of the altar. The readings were read very clearly. The sermon was very inspiring. The choir sung beautifully.

As the priest ended the 7 p.m. mass, he gently reminded those present to remember that we were inside the Church; and that grabbing flowers from the cart, to the point of pushing and hurting each other was not a proper thing to do, after all what does one do with a flower ? What is important is praying.

So again, I saw the Virgin Mary as it was brought back into the cathedral. As the cart was pushed in front of the altar, people in the Cathedral raised their hands towards her and prayed quietly. The image of the Virgin Mary stayed in front of the altar for another minute or two as people just watched and prayed in silence.

As the cart was finally pushed towards the side of the altar, people started getting the white flowers. (I heard that the move to get flowers was more subdued than usual --- as in the past, people shoved and pushed to get to the flowers.)

8 p.m. mass. As we finally left the Cathedral, the moderator announced the start of the 8 p.m. mass.... Obviously, Evelyn was really wrong... unless, again, June was special occasion?

So, from my experience: The Cathedral offers evening Mass: 6 p.m. 7 p.m. and 8 p.m.

Going to mass in the evening at the Cathedral is cooler, less traffic and more solemn, it seems.
